The Empire of Otogal is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 485 million Otogalians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kilonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.2%.
The all-consuming Otogalian economy, worth 56.3 trillion Cacaos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 116,019 Cacaos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,570 per year while the poor average 28,604, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.
Citizens must pay to enjoy Otogal's pristine beaches, couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, and adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Otogal's national animal is the Red-backed kingfisher, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
